I Miss You Daddy

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I learnt to swim last summer
Up and down the pool
My friends learnt with their daddies,
I learnt with no one at all.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I saw you sat there looking at me,
Drinking a pint of beer,
But when I went to call your name,
It went all suddenly clear.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I wondered where that came from,
The pictures in my head,
I chose to start to write them down,
'It will help,'the doctor said.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I suddenly saw bright blue trucks,
Waiting at the light,
Sat there like a group of dogs,
Ready to snap and bite.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I am feeling scared now Daddy,
Why did this happen to me?
Why can't I be like other girls,
As happy as can be?

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

Here we go again,
But this time it's not clear,
I don't think I can see you?
But I know that you are near.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I thought of you all through today,
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too!

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

I think of you in quietness,
I often speak your name,
Now all we have are memories,
And a picture in a frame.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.

Your memory is our keepsake,
Which I will never part,
God has you in his keeping,
And we have you in our heart.

It's been 13 years now Daddy,
Since you left us here,
Why did you do that Daddy,
You filled us with sadness and fear.
